The staff at The Graduate is great! So professional, nice and accommodating. I have stayed here many times, and have never been disappointed.

Very comfortable and well kept property with friendly staff. Excellent value

Loved the staff and location- the bikes were nice to use around campus

It was very convenient to my meetings in Tempe and had an incredible rate. The room was comfortable with the basic amenities and i would gladly stay there again.

This was a fabulous location to ASU campus! Literally right across the street. I'm so glad I found this little gem of a hotel property!

Good location in Tempe. Clean basic hotel. Recent construction on restaurants nearing completion.

Great hotel, laid back and friendly staff . Property is in great condition and close to Az State

This is a great hotel to stay in. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is right on Apache so if you have a student at Barrett within ASU its a perfect location. The room we had was a bit narrow and we had 4 people in the room so it was tight. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean with a nice view.

The hotel was clean and conveniently near the ASU campus.

I wish I had known they were under construction and the restaurants were not open. This was very inconvenient. Also I couldn't figure out how to turn on the light for the full-size mirror. Loved the place and the vibe tho

Veronica at the front desk was amazing! She was very personable and extremely friendly, she had a great smile and was very accommodating. The rooms were very small and didn’t look as they did in the pictures. The AC was right next to the bed and blew in our faces while sleeping. The water pressure in the shower was terrible and the bathroom sink was very slow to drain. We found an empty condom wrapper at the food of the bed that kind of grossed us out. We reported it to the front desk and they immediately took care of it and escalated it to management. I am told that they will report to Orbitz and see if I can be compensated. I loved that there was a free airport shuttle and it would also take you close by the hotel if you needed to pick up something quickly. There were also free bikes that you could take out for a stroll and they came with a bottled water and towel. The pool was small but nice(except for some obnoxiously loud flight attendants that were there loud and cursing, once they left it was great). The food at the normal diner was amazing, you have to try the chicken fingers, breakfast burger and pancakes. I also liked that they had blueberry, cranberry and strawberry mimosas- that was a nice change from the traditional oj. The shrimp tacos and steak nachos at pool were amazing! All in all the hotel had a nice vibe, and the staff was very friendly. I would probably try a few other hotels in town before I stayed here again though.

I had some minor issues, but the staff was right on top of correcting the minor issues. The staff was friendly, professional, and always available for any type of request. Great staff.

This was a great hotel! The location across the street from ASU was perfect for us. Check in was excellent. We had taken an Uber to get to the hotel and the hotel front desk refunded us what we paid for it! That was totally unexpected but made us really happy! They also offered a free shuttle for the nearby Tempe area and an airport shuttle. The best part about the hotel were the complementary cruiser bikes that we got to use. I only wish they had more of them! The bar by the pool was great and had really good service. We will definitely stay here again.

The location is excellent, the vibe of the hotel is very cool and the rooms are great!

Good place to stay in Tempe wth excellent access to ASU and Grady Gammage Auditorium. Rooms have unique "retro" features. Staff is very friendly and helpful and Tapicubo is next door. The weak spot is The Normal diner which has breakfast but is not great.
